We had a very nice stay at Silver Palms We had an improved site with lots of pavers and a Tiki covered patio. The roads are all well built and wide. The pool is huge and has a patio that is covered and uncovered - take your pick. Right in town so all the restaurants are close. Very nice library and was able to swap some books. The only downside was no cable tv. But I got the satellite with no trouble. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Silver Palms RV Resort is located approximately ¼-mile north of Lake Okeechobee. If you are looking for a resort to buy into, where you are away from the hustle and bustle of life, then I would highly recommend this resort. Lots can also be rented, but call the office as rates depend on dates of stay, length of stay, and location. The lots are good sized, approximately 40' x 70', and includes 30/50 AMP, sewer, water, and free Wi-Fi. The resort offers a lot of activities, such as crafts, dancing, various exercise programs, billiards, bingo, bunco, various card games, as well as pickle ball, volleyball, golf, and biking. So much to do!! And the pool is absolutely beautiful and offers a full-service snack bar with beer and wine, DJ's and live music. We stayed here in a 40' motor coach and, when the time comes, would definitely consider this resort as one that we would settle down in. Great getaway from everything! We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Our site was adjacent to the preserve which was very enjoyable to watch the birds, Sandhill cranes, egrets, osprey, etc. Sites are grass with pavers. However, the facilities were lacking. For a park with almost 500 sites they only had 5 washer/dryers and they were located at the farthest end of the park from our site. The same problem for the bathroom/showers, too far from our site. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice well kept park. My only negative comments are about the ants (but it is Florida, and they did come and spray twice) and the lack of cable TV, which you had to sign up for though the cable provider and pay a monthly fee, not worth it when staying only a few days. A few broadcast stations but mostly not worth watching. No picnic tables at campsite.

Short term stays park on level grass while owners park on pavers. Power was good as was water and very nice pool and club house. Lots of golf carts and a older population. Would stay there again. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This resort is very nice, but the surrounding area of Okeechobee is not what we are looking for in terms of a place to return to year after year. We liked the clubhouse, pool, and spa. We found the residents to be active and very friendly. The activities director does a good job of keeping a full plate of activities available to enjoy. We stayed in a newly opened section of the resort, so the grass-covered sites were open to the sun, basic, and adequate. Lots of potential here for the right site owners. If you are a walker, there is plenty of roadway to be walked in this resort. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed the month of November 2015 in our motorhome. The facilities are beautiful and the people very friendly. The lots are huge with a brick patio. The Wifi was consistently good. The laundry is small with five washers and dryers, but clean and comfortable. It was not to be found in the written instructions, but we were advised to set out our trash between 8 - 10 in the morning for curb side pickup, which was nice. I chose this park for the pickleball courts and especially the use of the ball machine and advanced skill lessons offered each week on the activity calendar. Unfortunately just because it's on the calendar doesn't mean it will be happening. I never got to see the ball machine in use, nobody ever seemed to know where it was. There were enough people to play with, but it wasn't the boost I thought I'd be giving to my game by staying here. I was wishing for a nice hot soak in the spa, but that is out of order. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a WalMart nearby, as well as Publix and Winn Dixie. There is a little movie theater (3 movies) in town. If you want more shopping opportunities you'll need to drive about an hour to Port St Lucie.

The Lake Side Grill had probably the best Reuben we've ever had.

We stayed here using a free 3 night offer from FMCA. We did have to attend a 45 minute tour with a salesman; however, there was no pressure.

The sites are spacious and the Park very well maintained. Good location for visiting Ft. Pierce or St. Lucie. Lots of organized activities. We enjoyed the hot tub. Only complaint was that the free wifi was slow. There is no cable in the Park at this time; however, some stations are available over the antennae.

This could be a great RV resort. Terrible WiFi and no cable. We could get better WiFi in Walmart parking lot or about anyplace other than park. Who has heard of good RV place that doesn't have cable? The local TV stations bounced in and out and this was during NCAA basketball finals. Couldn't watch almost any morning Network news programs. Good tennis, pool, and other activities. Many special interest groups (French Canadians) that couldn't speak English that were hard to meet or socialize with. Administration needs to work on this aspect. Really liked people we did meet. One has to travel 40 plus miles to find interesting towns or shopping. The campsites were lovely and no feeling of crowding. Lots of great landscaping. First class looks and feel. Clean and a feeling that these people care a lot. Country club atmosphere except for communications and technical aspect. I'd not return unless these items are attended to.

Tips for other Campers:

Not much in way of local history, culture or shopping, restaurants or specialty stores except for Walmart type stores. If you leave the park, there is almost nothing. Have to drive 40-60 miles to either coast. That's not really that bad, but the local (25 miles) is mainly farming, not that that's bad. No history or cultural things to do.

Stayed before and enjoy this location. But at the retail resort price it should have cable TV and WiFi. It was the rainy season so my grass site was mushy and I left deep ruts. The patio was paved, so we did not track it into the camper. The lake has a lot of shoreline water grass, so fishing with lures was a problem. Large laundry and library. Nice location.

We stayed there for the special 3 night stay with a tour of the facility and boat ride included. The place is new, clean, and well maintained. There are many and different activities available, and the rentals are always invited. The sites are spacious, with good electrical, water, and sewer connections. The sites all have paved patio. Many also have pavers for the camper; although, some are grass. Excellent place to stay, and would also be good place to own. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here with a promotional 3 day special and paid extra for additional days. Park is very clean with a lot of expansion in progress. I only give this park a 7 based on the value for the normal daily rate of $75. We were parked on grass and our RV left deep ruts as we parked on the soft surface. There was no picnic table, fire ring, or grill. You are given one hour per day of free internet but we never could keep it online. ATT cell service was very weak at this location. For the $75 per night price, this park didn't offer what you would expect. Will not stay here again for this price. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on a "Stay & Play" package special which included 3 nights, meet & greet party plus dinner & dance. A boat tour was also offered. What a beautiful park - first class facilities. Lots are available for purchase and many have been personalized. Most parks of this caliber are restricted to Class A's, but this park currently welcomes 5th wheels, trailers, etc. All facilities were clean, beautiful, lots of activities were offered and park is located in town so convenient and easy to walk to several restaurants, etc. We would definitely like to return to this park.

Very nice grounds and helpful staff. Roads paved, sites grass, and some with pavers. Every thing first class. No cable or WiFi. Have no doubt the antenna would pick up fine, but used the satellite. Went fishing at lake and got a few. Right in town and close to everything. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects a 3 night special. This park is fairly new, only about 3 or 4 years old, and I suspect that their primary motivation is to sell lots. The first phase of the park is complete, while the second phase has yet to be built. This park is trying to be a very upscale facility, and though it is very nicely landscaped, great club house, heated pool and clean, it has several unexpected weaknesses. The park allows both motorhomes and trailers. Some of the sites are fully paved while many of the sites are grass with a paved pad for a picnic table. Wi-Fi is included in the rate, and though we had a strong signal at our site (123) it was so slow it was unusable. The Wi-Fi service is provided by TengoNet which likely speaks for itself. We ended up using our Verizon cellular data access which did have the high speed LTE service. Staff, while friendly, did not do a very good job of letting us know about all the park activities. Parks of this type usually have a calendar style sheet with a list of all the activities and times for the current month, but not here. Also there is no cable TV available, almost unheard of in a resort of this type, and very little over-the-air TV is available in this central Florida location. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a Ten Plus Park !!!! Yes, they do sell lots, but they include everyone in all activities throughout the park. The sites are very well spaced. they have Dinner and Dancing every Saturday night for six bucks a person. We came in for the three day special and stayed six weeks so far. Today at one of the three days they serve lunch the manager asked what can they do to improve the park. That is a first for my RVing time. We are planning on coming back and maybe buying. This park is worth a look, the pool is bigger than most. Their club house seats 350 people, activities throughout the day or just sit and enjoy. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
